This study is designed to show what changes have been made in the organization and the administration of the elementary school from 1945 to 1950, as revealed in the literature and to point out possible trends, or indices of trends during this period. The expression "or indices of trends" is used because it is difficult to point out trends in elementary education in a five-year period.

The elementary school is not perfect, but that it is constantly changing in an effort to improve, is becoming more evident in the field of elementary education. This writer believes that democratic society never remains constant; we are always developing the elementary school, which has made notable progress during the last half century.

Local and world conditions have their influence upon education which cause the internal changes in content and administration of the elementary curriculum. Changes are made in education to stimulate the program of the School, so that it will meet the growing needs of the children during their developmental period.
